The annual middle school talent show is a highlight of the year for students, showcasing individual and group performances to the delight of their peers and faculty. After an audition process that allows students to be chosen to perform by their classmates, they are invited to present their vocal and musical talent, with unique awards given throughout.

During the show, Student Council representatives served as emcees, and each grade voted for the “best dressed” boy and girl. Middle School faculty also joined in the fun with their own act, the “2017 Ladue, Missouri, Aerobics Championship.” Ellie Schwartz (’21) was named this year’s winner for her vocal performance of “Journey to the Past” from Anastasia.

Congratulations to Ellie and to all of our talented performers!
